UN Commissioner Warns of ‘Weaponized’ Populism from Wilders, Trump, Farage Turning ‘Into Colossal Violence

by Bridget Johnson | PJMedia.com  |  published on September 7, 2016

The United Nations’ high commissioner for human rights blasted nationalist populists like Donald Trump and Nigel Farage for using “tactics similar” to ISIS to frighten and reel in followers.

“The proposition of recovering a supposedly perfect past is fiction; its merchants are cheats,” Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said Monday. “Clever cheats.”

Speaking at the Peace, Justice and Security Foundation gala in The Hague, Zeid — a Jordanian prince married to an American from Texas, global maternal health activist Sarah Butler — singled out Dutch politician Geert Wilders and “the populists, demagogues and political fantasists” like him.

The commissioner acknowledged he “must be a sort of nightmare” to these populists as he defends the rights of asylum seekers, gays, women and the disabled while being a Muslim “who is, confusingly to racists, also white-skinned; whose mother is European and father, Arab.”

He panned Wilders’ “lies and half-truths, manipulations and peddling of fear” and recent appearance at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. “What Mr. Wilders shares in common with Mr. Trump, Mr. [Viktor] Orban [of Hungary], Mr. [Miloš] Zeman [of the Czech Republic], Mr. [Norbert] Hofer [of Austria], Mr. [Robert] Fico [of Slovakia], Madame Le Pen, Mr. Farage, he also shares with Da’esh,” he said, using the pejorative Arabic acronym for ISIS.

    Hussein is a clever liar. None of the men he has mentioned has murdered a single person, unlike ISIS which has murdered hundreds of thousands. As a Muslim he doesn’t support homosexuals as his bible the Quran says homosexuality is an abomination punishable by death.

    Oh, something else to the UN . The persons named above are the few left with a brain and common sense in this western world.

  • Sigrid Egan

    As far as the UN goes, I hope that if Trump wins, he throws this organization out of New York, out of America and stops paying the highest membership fee to it. The members are all ultra liberals from around the world, who probably consider Climate Change the greatest threat to the world.

    Weaponized Governments & the UN are the World’s Biggest Problem especially when they also Arm the Enemies of Civilization

    Screw the UN. Defund them immediately, seize the HQ and move it to Damascus where they will be ever so comfortable. They can preach their One World and Agenda 21 BS from there, while America retains it’s uniqueness and sovereignty. #DefundTheUN #UNCanHateAmericaFromMiddleEast

  • Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein can go suck a pig’s penis, lowlife satan worshiping Pig of Islam! And the UN can kiss my Patriotic American A$$! I can’t wait until PRESIDENT TRUMP kicks the UN from our shores and stops all funds to it! The UN is nothing but a Islamic Butt Kissing worthless organization that America does not need to be a member of and that has no sayso, whatsoever, within our borders. Piss on the UN! TRUMP/TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOTS 2016!

    • Connie Alsip

      Molon Labe, indeed, Get all UN forces out of America. The last batch raped children and women. They are despicable anarchists who want to take over the world. I THINK NOT! #DefundAneDeport

    If the UN doesn’t approve or like Trump, he must be doing everything just right. The UN is nothing but a bunch of fat head egotistical idiots that like the liberals in this country are all knowing and the little people need to fall in line and let the brilliant elites lead. Crap on the UN for being a total waste of time.
    Trump 2016 God Bless America and Let FREEDOM ring……

    If these “populists” can irritate and frighten the UN then they must be on the right track. Time for the US to pull out of the UN and invite those other nations, in agreement, to follow suit.

    Does everyone know that Saudi Arabia is head of the human rights council in the useless UN, the same trash that lives by Shariah Law, still beheads people on a regular basis, and treat goats better than women and is really scum of the earth and over the Human Rights part, WOW!! This is like putting a Fox in the hen house to watch the chickens, isn’t this great! I guess it is for the UN, that is really the enemy of the world and needs to be done away with completely!

  • Mary Eleanor Urso

    Taqiyya, Mr. Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein? If the U.N. is against it, I am definitely for it!

  • Robert Robertson

    The UN…. The United Nothings…we need to send them all packing and implode the building. America needs the UN about as much as a polar bear needs a set of golf clubs.

    • Born in the South and proud

      All that hot air from the UN is definitely the cause of global warming, the coming ice age and the fact that my ice cream melts. Kick their ass’s off US soil.

  • justinwachin

    I don’t put much confidence in what the United Nations thinks. Their record of success is rather spotty at best.

    The UN would like to see Hillary Clinton elected president. She would be more than happy to embrace their agenda. Donald Trump has said that he wants to make America great again. The UN would be happy for the world to be filled with a bunch of mediocre countries all submitting to its directives.

    By the way, I don’t hold to an idealized concept of a perfect past. The past wasn’t perfect. Setting our sights on a stronger America is a worthwhile goal. The United States’ track record is whole lot better than the UN’s.

    THE UN IS NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF RADICAL MORONS WHO DONT KNOW THEIR HEAD FROM THEIR ASS.

  • rewindpulaski

    A “made-up and artificial – and elitist – guy” in a “made-up” position… Why should we listen to this guy? By the way; I agree with many on this board… The UN abandoned its original purpose over 20 years ago (when it became a sounding board for Jew-hating holocaust deniers and the like and those who continue to propose a “New World” order directed by a “New World” government and leadership)… It’s way past time – and if we are to do it, we should do it now – to “tell the UN to go to hell, leave NYC and the US, and cut off their funds”… They’ve truly out-lived their usefulness…

  • Chris Smith

    Who is this pos never heard of him. He is a no-body and has no right to demean what we think, fcuk the UN they are just a bunch of wan*ers!

  • Discusted

    I say to the UN SOBs … Bring it on ya B’stards ! We need to throw them out of the US !

  • rivahmitch

    What this mudslime PoS is really saying is that only its fellow mudslimes should be allowed to engage in violence and those in western countries should be stopped from defending themselves or responding. Mudslime extermination is the optimal solution. Semper Fi!!

  • Patriot47

    The UN will soon find out that MANY Americans will not lay down like our dear leader does to outsiders.

  • Lobo VNVMC

    The UN is a joke. They let our troops in Somalia die in 1993, as far a I’m concerned we need to tell the UN to go to hell and cut off their funds.

  • champion2211

    If no one likes Trump, he is our man. Trump 2016

    • Born in the South and proud

      Amen to that, I agree 100%.

  • BarryStern

    If the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights doesn’t like him, Donald Trump should be our guy.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53, A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT AND A CHRISTIAN, BUT NOT A ZOMBI, ONE THAT PULLS A STRAIGHT TICKET.

    THE GOVERNMENT PASSED A LAW IN 1952 BARRING ALL MUSLIMS, NONE IS HERE LEGALLY AND THAT INCLUDE OBAMA A PROFESSED MUSLIM.

    I BELIEVE THIS ADMINISTRATION FUNDED BY SOROS, INCLUDING HILLIARY IS OUT TO TURN THIS COUNTRY INTO A MUSLIM COUNTRY.

    IS HILLIARY ON DOPE? GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, NO AMERICAN, REGARDLESS IF YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN, INDEPENDENT, CHRISTIAN, COP, VETERN, SOLDIER, HOW COULD Y0U POSSIBLE THINK SHE WOULD BE BEST FOR OUR COUNTRY.

    HAS HILLARY AND OBAMA, KERRY, SOROS, AND THE BIASED MEDIA, SET THE USA UP FOR A MUSLIM INVASION? IF NOT, YOU SHOULD READ THE WHYS BELOW AND DECIDE YOURSELF.

    COAT YOUR BULLETS WITH PIG GREASE OR BLOOD AND LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT ANY MUSLIM KILLED WILL BE BURIED WITH PIG PARTS.

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CAROLYN WALKER IN AS JUDGE IN THE 7TH MUNICIPAL DISTRICT IN BROOKLING USING THE QURAN. SHE SHOULD BE RECALLED IMMEDIATELLY.

    WHY ARE THEIR 5 MUSLIM CAMPS ONE AT FAIRFAX, FALLS CH, RED HOUSE, MEHERRIN, BETHANY VA. ARE THEY TO INVADE WASH.DC? YOU SHOULD FIND OUT.

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER FORCED TO FEED AND CLOTH THE PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO KILL US.

    IF YOU WANT A LIST OF THE TOWNS THEY ARE CLOSE TO, CONTACT ME.

    SINCE OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED, YOU CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE THAT WANT TO KILL US & TAKE ANY MILITARY BASE IN THIS COUNTRY.

    BETTER WAKE UP & ALLOW OUR TROOPS TO CARRY LOADED GUNS. TODAY OUR CAMPS ARE A FREE KILLING ZONE.

    WHY DO YOU THINK THE MUSLIM MAJOR KILLED SO MANY IN TEXAS & HE IS STILL LIVING???.WHY?

    I CALLED AND VERIFIED THE MUSLIM CAMP CLOSE TO FT. CAMPBELL & A LADY VERIFIED THE FEMA CAMP WITH ARMED GUARDS IN EAST KY. AND THE ONE IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL FORREST IN SOUTHERN ILL. FOR GODS SAKE AND OUR COUNTRY WAKE UP.

    WHY GIVE 5 TERRIOSTS FOR ONE TRAITOR. FOLKS IT GOES ON & ON, WAKE UP AMERICA.

    WHY GIVE 150 BILLION AND ANOTHER 400 MILLION TO IRAN TO FUND A HYDROGEN BOMB, AND TERRIOST?

    WHY STOP THE SHIPMENT OF PLANES & TANKS TO EGYPT WHEN THEIR ARMY KICKED THE RADICALS OUT. I KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF WHYS, AND THERE ARE MORE, SUCH AS,

    WHY IS OBAMA & HILLARY TRYING TO BRING IN 160 THOUSAND MUSLIMS?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS

    WHY DID THEY TRY & BUY UP ALL AMM0

    WHY HAS OUR GOVERNMENT BUILT A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE. IS IT TO HOUSE MUSLIMS FOR THE TAX PAYER TO FEED?

    WHY HAS THIS GOVERNMENT ALLOWED 35 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE USA & ONE 9 MILES OVER IN MEXICO, FIVE ARE IN NORTH VIRGINIA. COULD IT BE TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES. COULD THIS BE THE REASON THEY WANT OPEN BORDERS. IS SHE ON DOPE? HOW CAN ANY CHRISTIAN, VET OR COP VOTE FOR ANYTHING LIKE THIS.

    VOTE DONALD TRUMP, NOT ONLY VOTE BUT GET OUT AND WORK FOR HIM TO STOP THIS INSANE DESTROYING OF AMERICA AND PRAY HE IS NOT SHOT.

    • Connie Alsip

      Amen and amen!

    The fruitcakes and the Muslims and those who have been trotting all over us in the name of whatever are getting shaken up by tough talk by leaders that are listening to the people and seeing the reality of what is going on in the UN and the EU and turning to hardliners. Yes we want our countries back and we want all the EU and UN Globalists to take a hike and shove it.
